this just in from the UFC 75 Media Conference Call Recap
- White said that Babalu has been cut from his contract because of the episode this past weekend at UFC 74. He said if Babalu had held onto a leg or arm — rather than a choke — extra long that the results could have been a lot worse.
- White said “Babalu” has been cut from his contract but won’t rule out having him in the organization in the future. “I never say never,” he said.
- White said Sobral knows he’s been cut from the organization and that he’s sure that he’s not happy about it. White said that despite the tone of past interviews, he was always planning to cut Babalu from the organization.

It's not like Babalu doesn't have any other options: IFL, Elite XC, K-1, Bodog. It's a shame pride isn't still around though, they probably would have signed him to rematch Shogun.

Roger Huerta Vs. Alberto Crane - I have Huerta's last fight somewhere on my computer, haven't watched it yet. I understood his last opponent 'gave him fits' and 'rocked him' from what I've read. While some people may think Alberta Crane winning is an upset as he hasn't fought any big names, a look at Crane's BJJ credentials shows a huge threat on the ground.
Huerta by JD.
Josh Koscheck Vs. Georges St-Pierre - I could see Koscheck taking GSP down a few times. Then....not much else. GSP by TKO late.
Kurt Pellegrino Vs. Joe Stevenson - Fairly equal in submissions, I see Stevenson's size getting him the win.
Patrick Cote Vs. Kendall Grove - Hmmmm, Cote will probably fend off Grove's submissions but lose to a decision.
Ryan Jensen Vs. Thales Leites - Don't remember their fights. Leites comes from a better camp.
Renato Sobral Vs. David Heath - Sobral by sub. He'll actually come forward and not run backwards like Machida.
Frank Mir Vs. Antoni Hardonk - Meh. Should play out like McCully vs Hardonk, which I didn't see. I'm sure Mir can wrestle the kickboxer Hardonk to the ground enough to get the UD.
Clay Guida Vs. Marcus Aurelio - Did you see Ishida vs Aurelio? The same will happen but Guida is much more aggressive. Guida by UD.
Guida by SD
Somehow I didn't enter my picks on MMA Playground. I picked 8 of 9 winners but only 3-4 actual finishes

Crane was pretty wild, but he fails to use strikes to augment grappling and vice versa. Huerta, on the other hand, succeeds.Anyone who has the power to make you believe absurdities has the power to make you commit injustices.

I just want to take this moment to point out again, that I WAS 100%...
That is all.

I should have voted Randy. I think it is the HARD RAWK entrance music that makes him win. AC/DC roolz.Anyone who has the power to make you believe absurdities has the power to make you commit injustices.

Tangerine---excellent point re language barrier.
As far as Kos, let's face it, the hair itself warrants a savage beating.
